Cucumber Tea Sandwiches

PREP: 30 minutes

8 oz tub of cream cheese spread
16 slices of wheat, rye, or white bread
2 cucumbers, skinned and sliced very thinly

-use chive and onion cream cheese, or
-finely chop 1/4 cup fresh mint and mix with plain cream cheese, or
-finely chop 1/4 cup fresh dill and mix with plain cream cheese (this is my personal favorite)

Spread a thin layer of the cream cheese mixture of your choice on each slice of bread. Evenly distribute cucumber slices (1-2 thick) on 8 slices of bread. Use the other 8 slices of bread to complete the sandwiches, then slice off the crusts and cut each sandwich diagonally. Keep sandwiches chilled, but dry, and serve within 4-6 hours.
